Build your talent pipeline with the Institute’s Level 4 Diploma, now part of funded Higher Apprenticeships

The Institute of Hospitality’s Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Hospitality and Tourism Management can now be a fully-funded component of Level Four Apprenticeships in Hospitality Management.

Employers can select the Institute’s qualification as part of a Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship in Hospitality Management, thus ensuring that their apprentices’ practical training is underpinned by a robust and sector-specific qualification developed by hospitality professionals for hospitality professionals.

“Enrolling your leading team members on a level four apprenticeship in hospitality is a great way  to  prepare your staff for their progression into management and support your business expansion. The inclusion of the Institute of Hospitality qualification means your staff will be the best-informed in the business,” says Anne Harper, head of professional development, Institute of Hospitality.

“The new funding regime that is coming with the Apprenticeship Levy means that SMEs in particular can gain significant government funding for their future managers across all departments – from chefs to housekeepers.”

“By asking for the Institute’s Level 4 Diploma, hospitality employers can now ensure that their apprentices’ practical learning is backed up by a rigorous and industry-specific qualification created for the industry by the industry.”

The Institute’s qualifications are regulated by Ofqual and offered by a network of colleges and training providers across the UK.
